I have to have temp control in the summer, so I've been fermenting in my keezer at normal ale temps, meaning that my kegs serve pretty warm. This isn't the end of the world, but it would be nice to have my fermentation AND cold kegs.
I'm thinking about getting some reptile heat tape for my carboy and another temp controller, then just stick it in my keezer at normal keezer temps. Anyone do this? Does your freezer cycle a ton more?
Does anyone run standard keezer temps and warm their fermenter with a brew belt or reptile heater? I understand that if I do this it means I'm paying to heat up my keezer and then paying to cool it back down, but if I insulate my fermenter with some reflectix wrap or something, it probably wouldn't be a big deal.
